No wake, again

Postby ffishman » May Tue 02, 2017 7:23 am

Supposed to go fishing Thur. Just checked the chain and the lower river is no wake, and the rest water level is still climbing. Getting really doubtful if we will get out Thur. Rats.

I feel your pain brother. Second go around this spring with flood stage by me. Feels like the river has been blown out since February.

This is the best time to fish the chain you don't have to deal with pleasure boats. I always had good luck when the chain was no wake.

Problem is, it takes for ever to get around.

Rats, foiled again. The entire chain is now no wake.

Really fun flipping bite when the chain is no wake due to high water. Lots of new spots for the fish to pull up in to.

Suck no wake but the fishing gets way better!!

Kind of disappointed my Wednesday tournament was canceled do to it.



If you wanna take advantage I'd pick launches near areas you wanna fish that is a close motor. Pistakee would be my choice for a great chance at some new flipping cover especially with no pleasure boaters on the water it could be amazing.

Plan on going out next Thur. But this time if the chain is still no wake, Geneva, here we come.
